Smoking cigarettes

Q: I have heard some people say that cigarettes are Halaal and some say that cigarettes are haram. I am confused and was hoping you could tell me if cigarettes are Halaal or Haraam?


A: When there is a doubt then it is better to stay out.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
